This Conference will be of great interest to the Water Quality Community.  It aims at reviewing the latest advances in the use of EO technology for scientific questions related to the water cycle and its applications, exploring the potential offered by the coming EO as well as the main challenges and opportunities for the coming decade.

The ultimate target of the event is to contribute to define a scientific agenda that may drive future scientific activities of ESA and other space agencies and partners in the coming few years. The Conference is open to EO scientists, water researchers and students, modellers, Earth system and climate scientists, industry, operational agencies, policy makers, representatives of local communities and other stakeholders interested in sharing their knowledge and experience and in contributing to drive the scientific agenda for advancing EO water research and applications.


  • Major challenges in the next decade
  • Future EO missions and coming observing capabilities of the water and energy cycle
  • Advances in EO geophysical retrievals, algorithms and products over land, ocean and atmosphere, fluxes and transports
  • Advances in water cycle sciences, process understanding and water climate research
  • Hydro-climate extremes characterisation and prediction
  • Water management: the user perspective
  • Major advances, challenges and opportunities in EO for hydrology
  • Water-energy-food nexus and water for the food baskets of the world
  • Regional water cycle and hydro-climatic regional initiatives
  • Water resources and climate adaptation and mitigation
  • Water research and novel technologies. (e.g., AI, data intensive science, citizen science, big data,…)
  • Operational / forecasting and data assimilation
  • Capacity building
  • SMOS 10years+ in orbit
